gcc CLI front- and back-ends in svn

Look ma! gcc is preparing to play nice with ECMA-335!

I should really read more about it… my computer is compiling the branch right now while I work. The bit I’m most excited about is the potential to call into c++ libraries.

Do the libraries all need to be compiled to IL, or can there merely be a wrapper compiled to IL which calls the C++?

Either way, it’s better than the status quo.
